Update: New Topic! (Josh)
After several in-depth conversations with WomenNC board members, I decided a few weeks ago to shift the focus of my research topic.
Instead of focusing on the experiences of sex workers, I'll be researching the phenomenon of sexual assaults on college campuses. Specifically, I'm focusing on how colleges/universities handle sexual assault cases.
Along with providing an overview of the existing literature, I'm also conducting interviews with survivors of assault, college administrators, and campus police to glean a more nuanced understanding of the effects of assault and how colleges can better support survivors.
Feel free to send along any resources you know of on this topic, as I'll be working tirelessly over the next week to narrow the focus of my paper, conduct a few preliminary interviews (these sections will have to be fleshed out more fully later on), and write up what I've found.
Best of luck to everyone else! See you in a week. :)
